[UK] Toys’R’Us Offers Free Chrome Vader w/Purchase

Toys’R’Us brick&mortar stores in the U.K. are offering a free Chrome Darth Vader with qualifying purchase. Similar to the Austria/German deal, Spend £29.99 or more to receive your free Chrome Lord of the Sith. This promotion was stated by LEGO to start on June 7th, but thanks to forum member bigospedros for giving everyone the heads up that it has already started. Offer good while supplies lasts so your mileage may vary.

May The Fourth Be With You 10th Anniversary Celebration

LEGO Star Wars isn’t the only game in town celebrating it’s 10th Anniversary. FBTB was born the same year the LEGO Star Wars products hit the streets. We’ve had a couple of rough spots over the course of our history, but I can say with confidence that the current state of affairs ever since the relaunch, which I affectionately refer to as FBTB 3.0, has never been better. Part of that is due to the awesome staff I have working with me on the site. And a HUGE part of that is our community. In order to celebrate, I’ve cooked up a very special giveaway as a way of saying thanks.

Austria/Germany TRU Selling Chrome Vader

I waited a little bit for confirmation on this, but apparently the Toys’R’Us brick and mortar stores in Austria and Germany are giving away a free 10th Anniversary Chrome Darth Vader with any purchase of €25. You can also just straight out buy one for €4,99 with no purchase limit. Bricklink is already flooded with them.

And The Winner Is…

From the hundreds of entries, many were disqualified, but only one would rise up to be called the big weiner. Congratulations go to…

Your Chrome Vader will be on its way shortly.

I was a little late in announcing the winner. I should have done this yesterday. If you weren’t lucky enough to win, maybe you can earn yours through our Podracer contest. And since it is March, I’ll be posting another giveaway in the next few days. On a sidenote, it amazes me how many entries I had to disqualify due to the person not including their mailing address. And in some cases, some other vital piece of information, like their city, or zip code. I know I sound like a broken record, but come on peoples, it’s not that hard. And I had posted a warning/reminder in the contest announcement too. I should offer a bonus prize for the next giveaway, that if everyone follows the submission requirements, I’ll randomly pick a second prize winner. Hmmmm, I just might do that….

Toy Fair 2009 Gift

Every year, LEGO prepares a special giveaway to attendees of their collector party. And every year, they always seem to outdo themselves. I’ve updated the Toy Fair 2009 page with words and pictures of this year’s gift: Chrome Vader-in-a-box.
